From a Wife:
★★★★★ “Touched my heart and soul”
by Just What I Needed Wife
Just what I needed. Sometimes we get so busy with our lives, kids, work, household, that we start to feel overwhelmed tired, angry, neglected, unappreciated. We can’t see that our husbands haven’t changed, they are still there doing what they have always done. But now when they want affection we are too tired, or see it as that’s all you want and not realize they love you and want/need that connection with you. Don’t push them away, love the fact that they still love/want/need you.100 Ways to Love Your Husbandreminded me that we are best friends, make time for each other…believe in him. I teared up a bit while reading this. Wish I would have read these marriage books 10 years ago. But it’s really never too late to change and want to be a better wife. This is a quick read, maybe 60 minutes of great tips! Plan to order this for my parents and siblings for their anniversary gifts. Thank you Lisa Jacobson!
From a Husband:
★★★★★ “Something to enrich any marriage”
by a Husband Repairing His Marriage
100 Ways to Love Your Wife can be very helpful if you apply it the way the author intended. Now, not everything in here will apply in every marriage or to every woman. That being said, there is something in here to enrich any marriage out there. I have found myself doing some of these actions before I read the book, but now I have actual purpose to do these things.As a man working to repair a marriage I read this marriage book from front to back, applying a few of these ways to show love and affection everyday. It has helped a lot this week alone. This is not a long drawn out book either and it doesn’t take a lot of time away from you to start applying. I plan on reading this book again and highlighting key points that I want to apply more.
